Organise Your Reading List, Using Google Reader

One of the two main benefits from Following a blog is an automatically placed subscription, to the feed from that blog. The feed can be immediately read, using the Reading List, at the bottom of the Blogger dashboard. After you add more than a few blogs to your Followed community, your Reading List will become a bit cluttered. Some Bloggers become concerned, and want to organise their Reading List.
How do I change the order of my Reading List?
or
How do I make folders, for the blogs that I Follow?
or
How do I let other people see the feeds, from the blogs that I Follow?

They are overlooking Google Reader, which is just one click away from the dashboard. Google Reader provides the solutions, for each of the above questions.


Just click on "View in Google Reader".




And there, we have plenty of possibilities, for organising and sharing your Followed blogs, and your subscriptions.

Please advise and help. I am losing traffic.

Thank you so much for your kind assistance.

Thank you very much for your kind assistance.

Masterwordsmith,

If your problem involves a feed being redirected through FeedBurner, I'll suggest that you address this known FeedBurner issue.

Custom Domain Migration - Managing The Traffic

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog. Publishing the blog to a custom domain, like renaming the blog, will affect traffic to your blog. The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers. People who read your content from their browser.No two blogs are the same - and no two blogs will have the same combinations of traffic sources.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
